Old Lady Gang Restaurant is the heart and soul of Atlanta's food scene.

“My goal is for us to leave a legacy and just show people that Black people can do it to.”

Their popular restaurant, Old Lady Gang, created in tribute to Burruss’ mom Joyce and her two sisters, is truly a family affair with positions from hostess to chef often filled by actual family members.
